Formerly acclaimed by our grandparents, tirelessly cooked in broth and soup, the leek resembled Georges Brassens’s great songs: timeless but still slightly old-fashioned. In order to give this refined and distinguished vegetable a swing, our Chef made it travel to unexplored regions: a spoonful of cream and a pinch of curry and here is our delightfully extravagant leek.
Leeks won their first stripes in Wales. Used as recognition signs by the Welsh, they were worn on the hats during the battle against the Saxons. Thus enabling to win a decisive victory, leeks became the country’s emblem. After disappearing into oblivion during a while, their subtle and fragrant aroma brought them back into gourmets’ cuisine!
Tips for preparing:
To enjoy at its best, we recommend heating the unopened sachet for 1 minute in a pan of hot water. If you’re in a hurry, transfer the sachet contents to a dish, or open the sachet and put it directly into the microwave. Microwave for 30 seconds @ 750 W. Stir and check the temperature. It’s ready!
Store at room temperature prior to opening, and once opened for up to 24 hours in the fridge.
